"Regardless of which side wins this first round, we have to be prepared for an appeal," said Linda Champagne, president of the Friends of Stanford Home. "I think we all would have preferred not to end up in court, but in Niskayuna, the developers have been walking away with everything.
"We know from our grassroots efforts that there are well over 1,000 people who are concerned about the future of the Ingersoll Home and preserving this valuable resource," Champagne said. "But we need to make sure they know there really is still hope for preserving this site."
